Life-saving advice - perhaps Aug 23, 2010

Car hire; forget it! If it’s too late to tell you that, consider the following in order:

1. Park your car ANYWHERE, pay any necessary fine and [possibly] live.

2. If you MUST drive and you are religious, pray.

3. If not, consider conversion - and then pray.

4. Failing all these, PANIC.


You have a fair chance of life as long as you don’t try to avoid the donkey, mule, bike, cart, motorcycle or car that’s heading straight for you. They don’t really want to hit you but, if you do move, they may swerve the same way to avoid you and then be unable to miss.

Hahaha that was hilarious really.

In fact you're right it is a bit difficult to drive around motocycles in Marrakesh. unless you get used to it.

So, I should not rent a car from Agadir (where I am flying into) to Marrakesh? Iam going May 29th until June 5th. I wanted to do some side trips, to the Atlas Mountains, Falls, & Essaouira, while I was in Marrakesch & From Agadir, drive to Legzira beaches for a day. Is driving that bad, along with finding parking and what about vandalism? Thanks for any info.
